Florida and Idaho officials are "exhausting every option" on how to make up Saturday night's rain out in The Swamp, Vandals AD Rob Spear said Tuesday.
There's a chance the game could dissolve but Spear adds, "the ideal thing is you would play it. That's what we're trying to work through." Idaho is scheduled to make $975,000 for playing in Gainesville, which suffered severe lightning and rain last weekend.
Nothing is official yet and Florida is still working through several factors, Spear said.
Sensible options include:
* Don't play the game.
* Play on Oct. 25, a mutual bye
* Play in early December, possibly on Dec. 6, the date of the SEC Championship. If Florida were in that game, they could play Idaho the following week.
A common question on social media was why the teams didn't play Sunday. Spear said he's not so sure the rain-soaked field would have dried out in time, plus readjusting travel logistics would have been difficult. Playing Sunday never was discussed, he said.
